    Backup your sd card,
    test it with h2testw,
    if the card isn't fine get a new one,
    if the card is fine format to fat32 using guiformat
    then paste your files back on the card.
    Then paste these files on your sd card (overwrite all files) https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v10.0.1, and try again

    It dont matter if its new or not. Some can be faulty or fake right out of the package. Its best to test the card now instead of finding out its bad and having data corruption later.

    as lone_wolf123 said you should test anyway and what files are on your sd card root currently? (sending a pic is preferred, but I don't know if you can post images yet)

    Did you empty the card and do a full read write test? Aswell, what size sd card are you using cause that was rather fast for the program.

    you need boot.3dsx from the latest luma zip linked above (that may not fix your issue but it's part of the latest release soooo)
    did you format your sd card? deleting all files is not the same
    also the test usually overwrites the files on your card. you need a full scan not partial

    yes, it would be preferred if you used guiformat, but try with that. also try without an sd card and see what happens (your led might flash a light so look for that)

    you may also need this https://github.com/SciresM/boot9strap/releases/tag/1.3
    the regular zip files go in a folder called boot9strap in your root

    enable loading of external modules
    and
    show nand user string in settings.
    you could also set the cpu to clock +l2 if you wanted (just keep in mind it rarely can mess with games, the only tie is has for me is SMT DSO)
    if that doesn't work try this version of luma3ds on your card https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/download/v7.0.5/Luma3DSv7.0.5.7z

    could you also possibly have the read only switch on?
